New spring wardrobe sorted. Time for LOOK’s Beauty Editor, Lydia Thompson, to give her hair the same treatment…

Switching up your look for spring isn’t just about your clothes. Nope. Saying adios to dull, winter hair is right up there too. Let’s face it, after months of indoor heating, bracing winds, hat hair and static, spring is the time to inject some fun back into your life and let loose – literally.

As Beauty Editor, Lydia Thompson, paves the way for pretty dresses and playful cover-ups, a super-sexy, soft hairstyle is the perfect finishing touch for a new, flirty wardrobe. And what better look than the perfectly undone one – the much sought-after tousled wave.

A natural, effortless style that can take you from beach-ready to red-carpet hot, it’s the style that’ll see you effortlessly through spring and summer – no fuss. We say no fuss, but to look this natural, you may have to put in a little effort. Luckily, with the right products, that’s not a problem.

Here’s how to get the look, and the products you’ll need to tame those tempting tresses …
